As I am currently in Beijing, I organized a quick visit to the chinese Capital’s Botanical Gardens. Having had contact with some locals, there was one species I was after: the Pallas’s Rosefinch (Pallas’ Roodmus) – a species very hard to find world wide. Some had been sighted here over the last few weeks. So this morning I gave it a go and after some 1,5 hours walking and searching I happily enough found them ! On top of that, I also found a species that I had been searching for so much last year but couldn’t fine then: the Chinese Nuthatch (Chinese Boomklever). Besides, I found some ‘old friend’ as the Chinese Grosbeak and the Bluetail.
